Every other Friday, I'm going to be sharing snapshots that I have taken in and around Mobile. Not only do I want to share with you guys this place, but it will help me to get out and explore. I love the idea of "snapshots", because sometimes they are quick and can be hurried, but always capture a memory. My photos may not always be perfect or frame-worthy, but I hope you enjoy them. I hope you enjoy seeing little glimpses of Mobile and I hope this encourages you to get out, explore your town, and take advantage of all your place may offer. This is #SnapshotsOfMobile. Enjoy!
Towards the end of 2014, my roommate and I were exploring downtown Mobile. We had heard people talk about this Before I Die wall, but wasn't sure of where it was. Well, we wandered down one of the main streets of downtown and found it! Before I Die was created by Candy Chang in 2011 in New Orleans, Louisiana. She created the wall after losing a loved one and found herself falling into depression. I love what it says on her website about the creation of the wall.
There are now over 500 Before I Die walls around the world in over 70 different countries! Learn more about the Before I Die Wall and it's creation here.
Chang created this experiment on an abandoned house in her neighborhood to create an anonymous place to help restore perspective and share intimately with her neighbors while remaining an introvert.
Have you ever come across a Before I Die wall in your area?
If you could write on the wall, what is one thing that you would write?
